Lesson Ten - Ode to Joy

Keep the following in mind when practicing "Ode to Joy":

  • This piece works great in the open, third, and fifth positions.
  • Learn it in the open position first and then try the other positions.
  • Melody is everything!  If you can play all the notes in the right order, great!  However, what did it sound like?  Be sure to play legato (smooth).  Try to move smoothly from one note to the next.
